MorphWorld: Astro into Scooby-Doo


Iwao Takamoto, who died last year at 81, was an artist who worked at Disney and later at Hanna-Barbera, where he created Astro (above), the Jetsons' dog.

In Takamoto's obituary mention was made of the fact that he also created Scooby-Doo (below),


"which makes sense, given that they're basically the exact same thing," wrote Rob Walker in his very limited 2007 edition (I own #3 of 40) of "Where Were You?"

There are a lot worse things you could do with your $2 ($1 + $1 shipping) than buy a copy for yourself.

It should be, morph Astro into Scooby, since Astro came first. "The Jetsons" first aired in 1962, "Scooby-Doo" first aired in 1969. And "The Jetsons" was better.
